Love Each Other

A simple message with a very powerful outcome. I think what we have lost sight of in today’s world is that not two of us have the same opinion on everything. To me, that’s what makes humankind so unique and powerful. We are not all of the same race, gender, nationality, religion, political party, family upbringing, experiences growing up, etc…..I could go on and on. We try to categorize people by these labels and to me that misses the mark. Pick any label and some of us fit into it, but do those same people fit into other categories together…not necessarily. How do we as individuals grow if we aren’t willing to listen and learn from each other?

So to me, this passage from the bible as the last commandment from Jesus to His disciples wasn’t about just the disciples loving each other, but the family of man. It doesn’t mean we have to like each other or even agree with each other on every issue, but at our core is the desire to love and be loved.

    I really appreciate your sharing this message, Kirt. I wish I could make everyone read it. I don’t understand his we can not see that our differences make us stronger. And I don’t see how we who identify as Christians, forget these simple yet powerful words.

    Agreed Kirt. Thank you. I was just talking with a friend about this. He said we can unite and care for each other as humans. That is our common core, along with wanting food, shelter, and belonging. More love would help us appreciate the differences while remembering we’re really the same.

      I so agree Sue! I remember many a family meal growing up where my parents encourage discussions around varied viewpoints to help us kids get learn that lesson!

    I completely agree with your profound and inspiring words, Kirt. Our world is beautiful and full of love but we as human beings have separated each other on religion and caste. All not wanted and created wars and what not. Hope we could all live together with love and kindness.

    Well said, Kirt. And a beautiful image to illustrate the point.
    You’ve reminded me of an old Three Dog Night song called “Family of Man.” Terrific lyrics as well as their wonderful harmony. Hugs on the wing.
